Indianapolis, Ind. -- Butler University junior A.J. Graves earned First-Team Academic All-America honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), the organization announced Wednesday (Feb. 28). University of Wisconsin-Green Bay sophomore Mike Schachtner was a Third-Team honoree, giving the Horizon League two of the 15 players recognized. The awards are sponsored by ESPN the Magazine.

Graves was a unanimous First-Team All-League performer on the court, ranking fourth in the League with a 17.3 points-per-game scoring average to lead the Bulldogs to a share of the regular-season loop title. The junior made 63 consecutive free throws at one point this year and scored 20 or more points in 13 games this season. He was the Most Valuable Player of the NIT Season Tip-Off after pacing the Bulldogs to that tournament title following victories over the University of Tennessee and Gonzaga University.

Graves also stands second in the nation with a 95.4 percent mark (125-of-131) at the free-throw line and is fifth with 1.40 steals per game for the Bulldogs, who are ranked 18th in the nation according to the Associated Press. Graves' efforts helped BU to a 26-5 overall ledger, eclipsing the League record for regular-season victories.
